The mysterious disappearance of a teenage girl, Dua Zehra Kazmi, from Karachi’s Al-Falah is yet to be solved. The port city’s police are currently searching for her.
The fourteen-year-old had gone missing around five days ago. Dua’s father said if his daughter was not recovered, he and his family would be taking their own lives in front of the Governor’s House.
After Dua went missing, her father filed a police complaint, saying that he did not have any enmity with anyone.
“My daughter wasn’t even going to school. She was simply at home for the past one and a half years,” her father said.
Dua has been missing for a week, but there is no clue about her whereabouts since she had gone out of her home to dispose of garbage.
Her father said that they lived on the first floor, reiterating that his daughter had gone to the ground floor to dump garbage but never returned.
After her case was highlighted on social media, police chief Ghulam Nabi Memon visited Dua’s home to assure her family of cooperation on the part of the law enforcement agency.
“We are doing our best,” the police chief told the family. “Three police teams have been formulated to find the girl. The girl will be with her family very soon. We have no objection if the family wants to join the investigation team.”
A unit of the Anti-Violent Crime Cell (AVCC) also met the girl’s father. Zubair Nazir Shaikh, the AVCC chief, said they had formed three teams and were working on getting CCTV camera footage to track the girl’s whereabouts.
“We are ensuring all measures to find the girl and are in contact with her family to gather all information about her disappearance,” he said. “A case has been registered at the Al-Falah police station.”
